Yet another tech company’s stock is getting hammered because of weak forecasts.
Let’s look at tech stocks to watch:
LinkedIn: Shares of the professional social network sunk 40% in morning trading after missing estimates for its first quarter outlook. LinkedIn lost $10 billion in market value, making it the worst stock drop for the company since going public. LinkedIn projected revenue of $820 million, while Wall Street forecast $867 million. However, LinkedIn claims investor forecasts are too optimistic.
Symantec: Shares of the security software maker surged after snagging a $500 million investment from Silver Lake Partners, reports Reuters. The company is also planning a $2.3 billion share buyback.
